Arts in Care Homes National Day of Arts in Care Homes 2022 – Arts in Care Homes

In 2019 The National Activity Provider Association (NAPA)created a website for anyone wanting to deliver arts activities and projects in care settings and successfully set up the first National Day of Arts in Care Homes on 24 September 2019 which has now become an annual event. It is a day to focus on the importance of the arts and to see the many benefits for the health, wellbeing and happiness for residents, staff, and relatives.
